Summer Reading Facilitators Sought
Faculty and staff are invited to facilitate a student group discussion for Michigan Tech's "Reading as Inquiry" project. This year, first-year students will read "The Postmortal" by Drew Magary.
As the story unfolds, John Farrell is about to get "The Cure." Old age can never kill him now. The only problem is, everything else still can. Imagine a near future where a cure for aging is discovered and, after much political and moral debate, made available to people worldwide. Immortality, however, comes with its own unique problems. Witty, eerie and full of humanity, "The Postmortal" is an unforgettable thriller that envisions a pre-apocalyptic world so real that it is completely terrifying.
Facilitators will lead a small group discussion of approximately 25 first-year students with assistance from upper level students during Orientation week. A facilitator information session will be held August 18 and the student group discussions are scheduled from 3 to 4 p.m. Tuesday, August 23. The book discussion will follow an address by the author.
As a part of the "Reading as Inquiry" events, Magary will be giving two author's addresses during Orientation Week. The author's addresses will take place at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.on Tuesday, August 23 in the Rozsa.
If you are interested in serving as a facilitator, register here no later than Monday, April 25. Facilitators will receive a free copy of the book via campus mail. Contact Heather Simpson or call 7-3558 with any questions.
